I just read about this today. Reboot your brain by having a 15 minute nap immediately after having a cup of coffee. It takes the caffeine about 15 minutes before it starts to work.

I usually do a 15 minute reboot at work, but today...I'm just loggy. Doing laundry at an overheated laundromat didn't help.

There are two vinegars I use in food. Rice and Apple Cider. For me the Rice vinegar is so much milder. I am not fond of harsh foods.

Maybe some parsley potatoes will suffice... or rice, but I've got fresh parsley I'd like to use up.
Are "egg noodles" the same as what I might call "ribbon pasta" or "Tagliatelle"?

Sitting here nursing a wicked illness. Had to visit the Hospital Emergency this afternoon. Second time in two weeks. I had a bugger of a chest infection last week that was keeping me up for about 4 nights in a row. It seemed to go away, but came back even worse yesterday in the wee hours of the morning. It's giving me quite a wallop. I got some antibiotics and an inhaler. Hopefully that will do the trick. Might just get some sleep tonight.

:( Drink lots of water, get lots of rest, and feel better soon.

Thanks. Things seemed to have leveled off. It was increasing in severity since about 4 this morning. The inhaler worked wonders. I have never used one before. Getting lots of liquids and still have an appetite. Waiting for 11 to take another shot and some decongestant then off to bed.
